In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guests as they mark the nine-year anniversary of the launch of the “All Things Real Estate” (ATRE) radio show, website and blog.
Starting as a one-hour program in June 2009—airing on a single Santa Fe radio station—today the ATRE radio show airs live for two hours each Sunday (12 - 2 pm Mountain Time) on Talk 1260AM & 103.7FM KTRC, and streams to a global audience on SantaFe.com, as well as via a link at the ATRE website. Each week, Rey hosts the first hour of the ATRE radio show, while professionals with Santa Fe-based real estate-related companies either host, or co-host with Rey the second hour of the program.
ATRE’s radio show, website and blog have gained a reputation as popular destinations for offering timely real estate, community, cultural and economic news and commentary for consumers in Santa Fe and across the nation. ATRE was nominated for a Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce “Business Excellence Award” and has been profiled in multiple media stories, as well as in the corporate newsletter of Sotheby’s International Realty®, which has a network of more than 21,000 sales associates working in more than 930 offices located in 69 countries and territories worldwide.
For more information, please visit http://atreradio.com/, as well as a press release that was issued this week about the ATRE anniversary: May 29, 2018 - ATRE Marks 9 Year Anniversary on June 3, 2018, which includes quotes from Gregg Antonsen, Senior Vice President and Qualifying Broker of Sotheby’s International Realty®, as well as from Hutton Broadcasting’s General Manager and Owner, Scott Hutton, and Morning Show Host & KTRC Program Director Richard Eeds.
Rey’s Observations on ATRE: “We are very grateful for all of the support over the years we have received from Hutton Broadcasting and SantaFe.com; the marketing and administrative staff, as well as brokers and officers at Sotheby’s International Realty; and the array of professional business, community and real estate leaders who have offered commentary on the show,” Rey stated. “Without all of them believing in the goal of our show, we would never have been able to launch ATRE,“ continued Rey. “The public’s interest in the show has given us success we never imagined when we began airing in June 2009,” continued Rey. “What has brought me the most satisfaction is that ATRE has played a role in helping home owners, buyers and sellers succeed in what is probably one of the most demanding and difficult things that they will ever pursue in their lives—namely, the selling or buying of a home.” On Sunday, Rey will also remind the audience that the Sotheby's International Realty® brand has partnered with New Story, a non-profit organization that puts 100 percent of donations toward transforming dangerous living environments into communities of safe, sustainable homes, for $6,000 a home.

Open House of the Week: Rey will review the attributes of 32 Camino De Los Montoyas, with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Gary Bobolsky. Located just off of Tano Road in the desirable Northside of Santa Fe County, this immaculate four-bedroom estate, situated on a little over five acres and once home to Bill Watterson—the creator of syndicated daily newspaper comic strip Calvin and Hobbes—has been transformed into a magical and secluded getaway complete with sumptuous and luxurious comforts that even the most demanding connoisseur has come to expect. These elements include a completely single-level main house, work,out room, two separate studios, garden house, and several garages to hold up to 15 vehicles of all sizes. A stunning heated, salt-water pool completes the private compound. Gary, as 2016 President of the Santa Fe Association of Realtors, hosted his own monthly broadcast during the second hour of the ATRE program. Gary will reflect on not only the positive experience he had when airing his own radio show, but also why ATRE serves as a unique communications platform for educating consumers about a range of real estate issues.
In the second hour of the show, Jeff Brown, Owner of WIN Home Inspection, and his guests will offer their monthly broadcast, speaking to a variety of home inspection and maintenance issues, as well as the state of the local real estate market. For several years, Jeff offered monthly phone commentary on the ATRE show, but for the past two years, has served as host of his own broadcast during the second hour of the program, airing the first Sunday of each month. Jeff will offer his thoughts on the relationship his company has had with ATRE, including the business-development value of using the radio show to attract new clients to the array of services offered by WIN Home Inspection.
